Kirkland, WA, February 25, 2014 – Acumatica, a fast-growing leader in Cloud-based Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solutions for small and medium-sized companies, announced today that Christian Lindberg, VP of Partners and Solutions, has been named one of CRN’s 2014 Channel Chiefs.
This list of influential leaders recognizes IT executives responsible for driving channel sales and growth within their organizations, while evangelizing the importance of the channel.
Lindberg said: “I am extremely honored to be recognized as one of CRN’s Channel Chiefs alongside such leaders in the industry. I’ve worked closely with the Acumatica team to aggressively grow our channel and establish a robust partner program. It’s been a fast-paced, but rewarding year for me! I look forward to an exciting 2014 full of opportunities and growth for our channel.”
In his role, Lindberg drove the growth of the Acumatica partner channel and the creation of its partner onboarding program. Acumatica nearly doubled its partners to more than 270, establishing relationships with leading resellers, ISVs, and OEMs.
Lindberg has spent more than 20 years building channel, and before Acumatica, he was at Microsoft, where he was responsible for Solution Sales and Marketing Strategy within the Microsoft Dynamics Partner team.
“We are pleased to highlight the many executives throughout the industry who work tirelessly to advance the standing of the channel community within their organizations. The CRN Channel Chief honorees lead, inspire and engage peers and serve as valuable advocates to help ensure the health and longevity of the channel within the IT industry. We applaud their efforts and look forward to their continued success,” said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company.
Acumatica CEO Yury Larichev said: “We are extremely pleased with the recognition, and proud of what we’ve achieved in the past year. Acumatica sells exclusively through its partners, so a healthy channel is crucial to our success. We are committed to creating and maintaining a channel that is as passionate as we are to take our modern ERP product and platform to the next level.”
CRN Channel Chiefs were selected by the CRN editorial team based on channel experience, program innovations, channel-driven revenue, and public support for the importance of IT channel sales.
